I'm not sure how big of an NIL warchest that we came up with but I think tang is going to go especially hard in the paint this year.  I would expect 6 spots to fill and 6 players remaining plus Castillo.

It would also be neat if we could get a guy that didn't bring the ball up the court and dribble right into 3-4 defenders and then either give one of them the ball or throw it to one of the other 2 defenders half the time.

i’m probably drinking too much of the Tang but i just don’t see us losing a lot to the portal.

maybe 1-2 guys is my guess.  the roster is really unbalanced and could use adjustments, I just don’t know if it will happen.

I personally think Taj Manning and Finister will hit portal.  I think there is a good chance DNG hits portal as well. 

Kaluma tries Pro/G-league/Euro.

McNair and Perry graduate.

We will need to hit portal hard since we have one incoming HS recruit.

Would be happy if we could hang onto Rich, Ames, Jones, and Finister.  Yeah, they dribbled into multiple defenders and turned over the ball, but you'd think Tang will really work on our turnover problem, and we'll see more of their potential.

just curious, what do you think DNG has to gain by portaling?

I see it as a McNair going to KSU situation.  In an ideal lineup, DNG comes off the bench as a backup.  If DNG wants to start and that opportunity isn't in Manhattan, there is a good chance he could transfer.

DNG has maximized his role here.  He has been great.  He won't get any more elsewhere and we really need him to stay with us unless he is moving on to Europe.

It'll be interesting to see who returns.  We'll probably have a big turnover and that's probably not a terrible thing.

We will lose a ton.  This is going to be nuts.  Would love to keep buddy.  The rest are just parts

wut? Buddy should be like 6th or 7th on the priority list of players to return. My guess is, we'll have 6 or 7 defections, counting the three players who are out of eligibility.
What are your predictions / guesses, MIR?

I think the defections will be
Finister
Manning
Kaluma
out of eligibility are
McNair
Lindsey
Perry

I think Glover and Rich are guys I think could go either way, I don't have a good read on them.

I would be stunned if any of the following left
Ames
Carter
Jones
N'Guessan, he may go pro, but he ain't transferring

He can't crack the guard rotation on an NIT team that got run by 4 white guys in Iowa.

i agree with almost everything you said here except I don’t agree that Buddy is a coin flip.  we have no reason to believe that. there’s actually less competition on this roster at his position than anywhere but PG.  he will play the three/four at a high level by his jr year, hopefully at ksu cats university.

ultimately i think that guys like playing for this staff, that’s evident by watching them play, and they’re lucky to be playing for this staff.

i’m more concerned about losing anyone from the staff than I am losing any players who still have eligibility.

DNG is a dog and should be and will continue to be starting.  prototypical JYD.
